Re: Noise block doring playback of D-VHS tapes

* Do not record program in DVHS mode on an S-VHS cassette. Use of S-VHS cassettes will not allow for maximum performance and may result in head clogging. Use only D-VHS cassettes as recommended in the instruction manual on page 27. * Make sure that the DIGITAL 3-DNR lamp is ON when playing back a cassette recorded in D-VHS mode. If not press DIGITAL 3-DNR so that the DIGITAL 3-DNR indicator illuminates. * When block noise appears on the TV screen, clean the video heads with the DFC-2 D-VHS Head Cleaning Cassette (continue up to 3 minutes total). Please refrain from using any other head cleaning cassettes as drum damage may result.

Sony Hi8 CCD trv308 NTSC making noise during recording that is audible on playback. Sounds like some moving parts related to turning the tape are not moving as smoothly as they should. Is there anyone...


I had this problem with one of these otherwise very cool cams that I inherited. Something was rubbing on the case of the cassette making a usually faint but audible grinding noise. It is hard to see unless you push the tiny lever on the side of the cassette and flip up the plastic flap that protects the tape. There was a small visible gray grind mark on the center of the case. Now when I buy a new tape I flip open the cassette and carefully scrape away enough plastic on the center of the cassette where it rubs (you can run it a bit and it will grind and show you where) so there is clearance. It worked!!

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital Camcorder: choppy hi-motion play


It very well could be a bad drum causing your problem. Be sure that the servicer you select is a Sony trained and recommended service center as they will have the latest bulletins information and training for your camcorder. I just checked on your camcorder and found this bulletin relating to your problem:
Blocking and Choppy Playback (Appears to be a dirty or defective head drum)

Symptoms / Customer Description
Blocking noise in the video during playback. Objects that were taped in motion are choppy.
[Primary Symptom Code: 1330 ]

Cause

Multiple D8 models utilizing the M2000 tape mechanism.

Cleaning the tape path has no effect on improving the symptom.


Solution

Service resolution, clean the point of contact on the video drum where the drum ground arm, ref # 804 comes into contact with the drum assy. After cleaning the point of contact, make sure the drum ground arm #804 is still touching the Head drum
assy.

(Note:After the tape path has been cleaned, the symptom in this issue will persist and lead most technicians to believe that the drum assy itself is defective. Replacing the drum assy complete will correct the problem, but it is not necessary if
the only problem is a dirty contact point on the drum assy from the ground contact.)

So you may not have a bad drum, but only a poor connection. This is why you want a Sony authorized tech to look at it. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Choppy recording and playback


If the heads become dirty, “NEED HEAD
CLEANING” appears during recording. During
playback, moreover, the following symptoms
appear.
≥Mosaic-like noise appears partially or the
sound is interrupted.
≥Black or blue mosaic-like horizontal stripes
appear.

When normal playback cannot be performed
even after the head cleaning
One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another
cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

Playback *stops* on tapes where I used Aux input to record


It could be that.. you generally want a timebase corrector to properly record from analog tape to some other medium. But maybe not. Most tape-based devices also include a tension sensor, to detect the end-of-tape. If you're using tapes that are too old, cheap, etc. it could be that you're seeing this triggered.

I recommend trying the same VHS recording with a good quality, fresh tape. If it's still kicking off, you at least know it's due to the camcorder having issues with sync or something on the tape. If it works, blame the old tapes.

It's probably camcorder dependent, but I have done tape restorations using Digital8 and DV equipment, and have never known a camcorder to cut itself off due to dropouts or other problems on the tape -- mine just play through. So I think it's at least possible that it's just the tape.

GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder makes clicking sound when tape running


the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.

send it in for repair.

Bad playback quality


Some possible cause of lines, noise or pixelation during playback are: 1. Dirty heads on the recording machine. If the heads were dirty at the time of recording, the dirty heads didn't record a strong enough signal on the tape. The damage is done for this tape and recovery is unlikely. Best advice here is to use only premium grade new tapes and keep your camcorder clean by occasionally running a cleaning tape. 2. Physical tape damage. Any distortion of the tape will result in mistracking and subsequent loss of data. 3. Built up oxide deposits or other debris in the guidepost corners can also result in tape edge damage. Keep your machine clean! 4. Improper tape storage - Even short term exposure to high temperatures over 130 deg f. can permanently damage the tape. The black cassette housing readily absorbs the sun's infrared rays and internal cassette temperatures can soar even if left in direct sunlight on just a warm day. It doesn't take much heat to slightly distort the plastic shell or ruin the tape contained within. * Try other tapes to ensure the problem lies within the tape and not the camcorder. * If the problem becomes apparent on all tapes, try a head cleaner. After cleaning the heads, the tapes may not play cleaner if the recording was done while the heads were dirty.
